Part 1 of 2: 1:00 pm – 2:40 EST; Part 2 of 2: 3:00 pm – 4:40 EST

Course Description:

This two part virtual training will be a deep dive into federal grants management statutes and regulations, including the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA), Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR), Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements (Uniform Grant Guidance).
